              Question:

              To Determine the scale of the measurement

         ClassOf1 provides expert guidance to College, Graduate, and High school students on homework and assignment problems in
                       Math, Sciences, Finance, Marketing, Statistics, Economics, Engineering, and many other subjects.

              1. Suppose a survey item asks someone if something is very important, somewhat important,
              not very important, or unimportant. This is an example of what level of measurement?
              A. nominal
              B. ordinal
              C. interval
              D. ratio

              Solution:
              Correct answer is B. Ordinal.
              These categories “very important”, “somewhat important”, “not very important” and
              “unimportant” can be arranged in decreasing order of level of importance. Therefore, it is an
              example of ordinal level of measurement.

              2. Which level of measurement has an absolute or "true" zero point?
              A. nominal
              B. ordinal
              C. interval
              D. ratio

              Solution:
              Correct answer is D. Ratio.
              An interval-level measure is created
